10 Hotels for a Phoenix Staycation

Summer in Phoenix means one thing: Everyone's pretending they're somewhere else. If you can't actually get out of town to escape the heat, make the most of the Valley of the Sun at one of these top hotels and resorts. There are staycation destinations for fine dining at gourmet restaurants, whiling away the morning on the golf course, entertaining the whole family, and getting back to nature with hiking and biking in the mountains. And every resort on the list has one thing in common -- pools galore with shaded cabanas, food and drink service, and water slides.
